Webinar – Research and Clinical Practice: Sex Differences in Dementia

Sex and gender differences have become increasingly recognized across the dementias in recent years. In this webinar, Dr. Rachel Buckley will review current evidence for sex differences in Alzheimer’s disease risk across the measurement spectrum – from epidemiological evidence to clinical phenotypes and biological markers. Further, she will discuss the question of whether these sex differences underlie a story of resilience or vulnerability from the perspective of sex hormones, genomics, vascular contributions and immune pathways. In the second half of the webinar, Dr. Sarah Banks will discuss how to translate the latest research in sex and gender differences into every day clinical practice. She will highlight recent findings in common diseases which cause dementia including AD, FTD and LBD and provide suggestions of how we can incorporate these considerations into patient care to facilitate accurate diagnosis.
